Connected in quality.
Quality is the driving force behind everything we do. It’s the heart of our company’s identity, and it has been that way for more than 115 years. Our devotion to quality has helped us achieve our vision of providing safer, faster, cleaner plumbing technology. Today, we have more than 4,000 employees worldwide. We are a global market leader, but because we are still family owned, we set our own standards.
Since our standard is true excellence, every day we strive for the highest quality. Every day we seek to be better than the day before. We listen to our customers. We innovate solutions. We lead the industry toward the future, but we will never forget where we came from and why we’re here.
We believe in our customers, and we support their daily work by coordinating materials, managing technology, and investing in research and development. That’s how we can offer truly innovative systems – more than 17,000 products – whenever our customers need them. Innovation isn’t meant to be secret, so we are committed to sharing what we’ve learned to help our industry thrive.
Quality is who we are.
Tradition and Vision
A family-owned company
In 1899, Franz-Anselm Viegener founded Viega, laying the foundation for our success story. It all began with beer taps, Viega’s first product, sold to local breweries and taverns around Attendorn, Germany. As the company grew, the number of products increased. Drains and overflow fittings came first, and when the first factories were opened, manufacturing expanded to include copper connections and plastic products for sanitary facilities. But we’ve never been satisfied with the status quo. We wanted to improve the industry, so we improved copper press technology, and followed that with invention of the Smart Connect feature. The innovations keep coming.
A global market leader
Today, Viega has become an international market leader with 10 locations and over 4,000 employees worldwide. But at our heart, we are still the same company our founder started, driven by the same passion for quality and the same standards of excellence. We are more than a company; we are family. Our employees make Viega what it is, and we are dedicated to their individual success. When our people achieve great things, so does Viega. We don’t limit our focus from one quarter to the next. Our goal is excellence from generation to generation.
At Viega, our standard is excellence, and we aren’t satisfied until we achieve it. So we want to make it possible for the trades to achieve it too. We help establish new codes and standards. We develop specifications alongside engineers. We train the industry, not just on our own solutions but in best practices as well. The industry is growing, and as world leaders, it is our responsibility to grow with it and help our customers do the same.
Water quality is at the core of Viega’s list of competencies. When it comes to maintaining clean drinking water, we do more than develop products and identify the best materials. We create new solutions that help prevent stagnation in drinking water installations. Then, we offer support through comprehensive service and seminars. Clean water is essential to life, and since we have the solution, it’s our responsibility to share it.
Not all plumbing is invisible. Some of it you have to see every day. So why not make it beautiful? In the pre-wall and drainage technology sectors, we manufacture state-of-the-art products, consistently setting new design standards. Viega has received more than 100 awards for design.
A fire protection system can make the difference between life and death. That’s why it’s so important for Viega to provide a comprehensive range of piping systems with fire protection certifications. Our solutions fulfill all the strict regulations designed to prevent fire and can be installed with zero spacing, which makes installations in tight quarters easier. This helps to keep homes and commercial buildings safe, while exceeding current industry standards.
Less isn’t always more. Sometimes less is just enough. With our innovative radiant heating and cooling systems and insulation for our piping, we provide sustainable and energy-efficient options for customers. Our state-of-the-art installation technology makes it possible to complete a project using only the energy that is needed. Not more. Not less. Enough.
Today’s achievements might be great, but tomorrow’s could be greater. That’s the attitude behind Viega innovation. Every day, our team of researchers and developers devote their energy and brainpower to finding new ways to make our industry safer, cleaner, and more efficient. Viega was one of the first to introduce copper press fittings to the market, reducing labor costs exponentially. We were also first with Smart Connect, which provides unbeatable peace of mind knowing your connections are secure. With so many industry-altering solutions today, imagine what tomorrow will bring.
As the leader in innovative plumbing technology, Viega has a long track record of first-time patent applications. This spirit of innovation is obvious in every fitting across all Viega system solutions. Our passion for pushing the boundaries of plumbing technology has helped the industry achieve targets, hit deadlines, and meet budgets. New solutions, improved techniques, and engineered systems provide the market with options that save time and expense.
